On a recent trip to Mexico, the Mr. and I fell in love with a little cocktail called The Paloma.  The Paloma combines tequila with the tart and fresh flavors of grapefruit and lime to create the most refreshing of libations.  A typical Paloma recipe is topped with a lime or grapefruit wedge, but I really love adding a slice or two of jalepenos for some heat.  Or try a fresh sprig of thyme or mint to cool it down.  Either way you shake it, or top it, I guarantee this Paloma recipe will quickly become a new five o’clock favorite.  Truly, MKR
